Monster Magic Action Trading Cards



8 of the 24 originally available, comes with a card-sized lenticular lens that you move around on top of the images for not-very-impressive action, I have the package too but that didn't scan well(the top two images are grabbed off the Interweb), anyway there ya go! Print 'em out and find a lens and you're all set! Don't say I never did anything for you!...
Make the helpless victims wiggle, that's what I always say!...

Grew,
What year did this set go on sale?
Did you collect the black and white monster cards movie monsters in the 1960's with funny captions and movie info on the back side?

Is the dinosaur supposed to be whapping that guy with his tail? I think the lens is in a box somewhere in my parents attic. Doh!

The set of B&W Cards i once had showed Sci Fi movie Monsters from the 50's and 60's not all the cards had a weird caption on the front.
The same company also made a set for The Munsters,The Beatles,THE ADAMS
FAMILY.No piece of chewing gum.The cards are smaller than Baseball cards.All mine got lost perhaps the dogs ate them.
